How come no one ever talks about Hoyt??

I always like Hoyt Axton and that deep voice. Wrote some funky tunes, didn't have a ton of commercial success however wrote a ton of music for others like 3 Dog Night. Joy to the World comes tu mind...

Didn't he write, "The Pusher"? "Well, I've smoked a lot of grass Lord knows, I've popped a lot of pills".

Just you bringing up Hoyt Axton's name on the BJ is probly more
publicity than he's had in years.

I thought Hoyt Axton was pretty cool. Straight forward singer/songwriter. No frills. Perfect!

And that's how Bucket got all his toys.

(Edit) Forgot about the extra large boots, handy for setting small children straight.

 That means that Buckethead has layed down some "trademark sounds" on

maybe a vinyl record or a CD that is still selling worldwide. How cool is that?

 That would be cool! However I only sold the raw song. All the extra stuff was added by the musician.

Many moons ago (before autotune and boy bands) you could write music and submit it IF you did it properly. You couldn't send in unsolicited material to a record company and expect any response. Anyhow, I wrote several basic song structures and submitted them through a company that would catalog them until such a time some band needed some new material. They review it, and it becomes theirs. My "cut" of royalties are minute because I only supplied the "idea" not the final product.

I got a check for $300 a few months back from ASCAP. The final product belongs to Joe Stump, an instructor at Berkley.
